After looking closely at the figure we reported as a card back variation the other day it became clear that it is most likely an error more than anything else. The factory applied sticker is identical to the one on all the North American Tri-Logo Rebels Saga Legends SL12 Snowtrooper figures currently at retail. Chances are good that that the sticker meant for the SL12 figure accidentally applied to the SL01 figure. If you have an opinion on this either way, let us know.

I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
